REDBREAST 15 YEAR IRISH WHISKEY (750 ML)
Redbreast 15 Year Old Irish Whiskey launched in the U.S. in September 2010. Created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of La Maison du Whisky, this limited series is without a doubt one of the finest expressions of whiskey making in Ireland. This “Irish Nectar” is indeed a true collector’s item 46% ABV.This new 15 year old expression is more muscular (bottling at 46% and not chill filtering certainly helps), but there are trade-offs. It’s a bit closed on the nose (like a great Bordeaux wine that’s too young). I do enjoy the silky/oily texture, the bold resinous oak spice grip on the finish, and the rich nutty toffee, fig, black raspberry, chocolaty, chewy nougat throughout the palate.
